Gypsy Moth, Stink Bugs & Spotted Lanternfly

Dealing with pests is a year-round concern. Our team of certified and licensed experts is proficient in a wide array of treatment methods, including mechanical options like traps, as well as organic, traditional sprays, and soil and tree injection techniques to effectively control pests.

  • Spongy Moth (Lymantria Dispar) – The Spongy Moth, an invasive species, undergoes a transformative journey from a small caterpillar to a full-fledged adult moth. Eggs are typically deposited from June to August. To combat this pest, we offer a diverse range of control methods, encompassing organic, traditional, and chemical sprays, as well as soil and tree injections.
  • Stink Bugs –  Stink bugs are notorious for feeding on a wide variety of plants, including fruiting trees, and are known for infiltrating buildings through cracks and holes. We provide solutions to reduce their population, employing traps and sprays as effective methods for their removal.
  • Spotted Lanternfly (Lycorma Delicatula) – The Spotted Lanternfly, similar to the Gypsy or Spongy Moth, is highly invasive. This pest selects various tree species, such as Black Walnut, Maples, Ailanthus, and Grapes for reproduction. During both the nymph and adult stages, they voraciously feed and can defoliate entire trees. Our expert team at Malcarne offers specialized solutions for the effective management and control of Spotted Lanternflies, safeguarding your valuable trees and landscape.

Air Spade & Deep Root Fertilizations

The air spade is a cutting-edge excavation device designed for root removal and inspection. This innovative tool harnesses the power of compressed air to swiftly and efficiently displace surrounding soil, facilitating root collar excavation for a thorough assessment of the root structure. Whether dealing with dense clay or sizable soil clumps, these devices exhibit the strength needed for the job. For expert air spade services in New York’s Hudson Valley region, contact Malcarne Tree, PHC & Landscape.

Hemlock Wooly Adelgid

Hemlock Wooly Adelgid is a widespread pest affecting Dutchess County, NY, and neighboring areas. Resembling aphids, these tiny insects feed on tree sap and pose a significant threat to hemlock trees in particular. Their presence can lead to issues such as needle drop, branch death, and even the potential demise of entire trees if left untreated.

At Malcarne Tree, PHC & Landscape, we have the expertise to combat Hemlock Wooly Adelgid infestation. Our team employs effective methods to prevent and treat these pests, safeguarding the health and longevity of your trees.

Emerald Ash Borer

The emerald ash borer is an invasive species with four main life stages: adult, egg, larva, and pupa. As its name suggests, the adult beetle is brilliantly emerald green and is visible on ash trees from late May through early September. Signs of an Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) infestation include striping or lightening of areas where bark is absent due to increased bird activity, tip, canopy, and branch die-back, and the presence of distinctive D-shaped exit holes in the bark.

An EAB infestation can lead to the rapid decline of a tree or may take several years to fully infect it. Our specialized plant health care team in Hudson Valley, NY is equipped to treat your ash trees and eradicate the borer infestation.

Bronze Birch Borer

The bronze birch borer (Agrilus Anxius) is an invasive and destructive beetle that primarily targets birch species, with white birch being particularly susceptible. Signs of a birch borer infestation include the presence of holes in the bark, heightened bird activity, and upper canopy die-back, accompanied by leaf drop. This borer disrupts the tree’s vascular system by burrowing into its inner structure, affecting the transport of essential sugars and water required for the tree’s survival.

Our Malcarne Tree, PHC & Landscape team can employ various applications to mitigate and reduce the impact of this destructive pest. These methods include bark injection, foliar application, and soil injection, all aimed at safeguarding the health and vitality of your birch trees

Poison Ivy Control

Poison Ivy, with its notorious three-leafed appearance, can be a source of significant concern. It’s not just its appearance; it’s the potential skin irritation and allergic reactions it can cause that make it a nuisance for property owners.

We understand the importance of effective poison ivy control and employ proven spot treatment methods to target and eliminate these troublesome plants. Our expert team is well-versed in the proper identification and treatment of poison ivy, so you can enjoy your outdoor spaces while feeling safe. Trust us to help you protect your landscape and your health by keeping poison ivy at bay.

Weed Control

Weeds can quickly overtake the beauty and health of your landscape, invading lawns, patios, driveways, and garden beds. At Malcarne Tree, PHC & Landscape, we offer a comprehensive suite of weed control solutions to address this common issue. Our services include a diverse range of organic and traditional herbicide treatments tailored to your specific needs. Whether it’s broadleaf weeds, grassy invaders, or persistent garden bed nuisances, our expert team can effectively target and eliminate them. Ensure your outdoor spaces remain lush and vibrant with Malcarne!

Tick Control

Managing ticks requires a comprehensive approach that includes possible landscape modifications accompanied by safe treatment techniques. We recommend 3-5 treatments a year minimum to help control ticks. This treatment also helps to control mosquitoes too!

Below are landscaping techniques that can help you reduce tick populations. We offer the below services upon request.

  • Removal of leaf litter: We clear tall grasses and brush around homes and at the edge of lawns.
  • Placement of tick barrier: We install a 3-ft wide barrier of wood chips or gravel between lawns and wooded areas. This restricts tick migration into recreational areas.
  • Regular lawn mowing: This keeps grass at an ideal tick-resistant height.
  • Stacking of wood neatly in a dry area: This discourages rodents, which can host ticks
  • Design and build decks or patios away from yard edges and trees: This reduces tick-friendly, shaded areas.
  • Construct fences: This discourages unwelcome animals such as deer, raccoons, and stray dogs from entering your yard.
  • Enhancing sunlight exposure through tree and shrub pruning: Both ticks and fleas like shady, moist areas. Pruning trees and shrubs allows more sunlight to enter your landscape.

Deer Protection

Deer can be a nuisance all year round. While deer may appear to be dainty, harmless creatures, they can do plenty of damage to your property. Hungry deer can wipe out foliage, crops, flowers, and plants in short order. Deter these beautiful but destructive critters with the help of a deer-repellent program! We offer deer fencing and deer repellant sprays in the Hudson Valley, NY region to effectively keep them away.

Winter Burn

Winter burn (antidessicant) is a common issue, especially among evergreens, but it can also impact a variety of plants and shrubs. It occurs when cold conditions draw moisture from leaves and needles, leading to dieback and leaf/needle drop. Initially, foliage begins to brown and gradually progresses. In severe cases, entire plants may brown and die.

To safeguard your plants, we offer protective burlap and effective foliar applications. These measures help reduce and prevent winter burn damage, ensuring the vitality and health of your landscape through the winter months.
